Envisioning a New Food Policy

The California Food Policy Council, a collaborative group of local food policy organizations, has approved a working vision of a governing document called 'A Vision for a Healthy, Vibrant, Equitable Food System'. The document consists of ten points, covering labor, health, environment and education among others, as the fundamental building blocks of a new food policy. 

"Food and agriculture has a profound effect on the health and well-being of our communities and our natural environment. The goal of California's food and agriculture system must be to achieve greater health, equity and prosperity for our diverse communities and natural ecosystems. "
